Role of Millat Tractors in auto industry
Millat Group is Pakistan's leading engineering concern in automobile sector and has a history that spans almost half a century.

The MILLAT TRACTORS was established in 1964 in the name of Rana Tractors and Equipment to introduce Massey Ferguson tractors in Pakistan by importing Complete Built Up (CBU) tractors from UK.

An assembly plant was set up in Karachi in 1964 to assemble tractors imported in semi-knocked down (SKD) condition which in 1967 was shifted to Lahore.

Millat Group has played a pivotal role in transfer of technology and transformation of a fledging local light engineering sector into a robust, vibrant, quality conscious Auto Vending Industry.

Today, with the Grace of God Almighty, all targets for local indigenization as fixed by the Engineering Development Board have not only been achieved rather exceeded with the co-operation of vendor base presently comprising of more than 250 Industrial units, both small and large organisations, supplying tractor components.

These vendors have not only been helpful to the local tractor industry but are vital for the entire automobile sector and even to the Defence Industry of Pakistan.

The performance of the Company during the financial year 2010-11 has been recognised countrywide and internationally as well.

The Karachi stock exchange has listed Company's name in the top 10 companies of country.

Whereas Internationally, Forbes Global Magazine has included the name of Millat Tractors Limited in Asia's Best 200 Under a Billion $ Companies.

Plimsoll, UK, world portfolio analysis 2011, ranked MTL in top 30 tractor Companies of the world.

Tractors & Farm Machinery:

Keeping in view the local farming needs, the company offers six tractors models from 50 hp to 85 hp.

These models are world-wide competitive in price and quality.

Besides these, 100 hp and above tractor models are being imported to cater the need of large farms.

More so, the Company has to its credit introduction of wide range of implements suitable to its tractor models and local cropping pattern.

Recently, the Company has introduced tractor driven Fodder Harvesting Machine in collaboration with JF Brazil.
